Act Out Your Algorithm!
Playing with blocks has been around for centuries. From classrooms to doctor's offices, this age old toy remains one of the most important tools for children to use in order to develop critical thinking skills. Our Hands-On Coding Blocks allow children to physically move and act out algorithms.
We have taken the computer out of computational thinking, and have approached it with the human and their experiences, at the core. Our Hands-On Coding Blocks turn the human into a computer and teach children not just how to solve problems, but also how to communicate, collaborate and be creative! Kids learn by doing, which is why our Hands-On Coding Blocks are a perfect tool to learn the fundamentals of computational thinking, in a fun and engaging way.

Why HANDS-ON CODING?
Computer Science has many areas, algorithms, functions, conditions and more. These concepts are often unfamiliar, abstract and confusing to children. Coding Blocks help children develop the ability and confidence, in an intimidating subject, to fundamentally learn computer programming at a very early age.
Here are four reasons why Hands-On Coding and coding manipulatives help children learn Computer Science:
1. Coding Manipulatives help make abstract ideas concrete.
Coding blocks (manipulatives) give children ways to construct physical models of abstract coding ideas.
2. Coding Manipulatives turn a Digital World into a Physical One.
While most people are scrambling to turn everything digital, we have reversed the role and have allowed for a digital idea to be created physically. Our process allows the student to physically move and act out programs created with Hands-On Coding Blocks. It is a fun and engaging way to learn the basics of computer coding.
3. Coding Manipulatives Build Childrens' Confidence
Hands On Coding build childrens' confidence by giving them a way to test and confirm their reasoning. If students have physical evidence of how their thinking works, their understanding is more robust.
4. Coding Manipulatives Make Learning Computer Science Fun
Give children interesting shaped blocks to solve a problem and they are immediately engaged. Coding manipulatives intrigue and motivate while helping students learn.
